About The Pennant Group

We are proud to be affiliated with the Pennant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: PNTG). Pennant was created in 2019 in connection with The Ensign Group, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: ENSG) spin-off of its home health, hospice, and senior living businesses. Ensign was formed in 1999 with the goal of establishing a new level of quality care within the skilled nursing industry. The name "Ensign" is synonymous with a "flag" or a "standard," and refers to Ensign's goal of setting the standard by which all others in its industry are measured. The name "Pennant" draws on similar imagery and themes to represent our mission of becoming the "Ensign" to the home health, hospice and senior living industries. We believe that through our innovative operating model, we can foster a new level of patient care and professional competence at our independent operating subsidiaries and set a new industry standard for quality home health and hospice and senior living services.
